International House – Home Room
The Right to Education Campaign at Birzeit University is sponsoring the first-ever US Right to Education Tour in November 2014. Ten students from the R2E campaign will spend two weeks touring college campuses in five different regions of the US.
SJP at UChicago and SJP at Columbia College are proud to be hosting two of these students, Dina and Ziyad, who will speak about their experiences as students and youth activists living under and resisting occupation in Palestine. A student from Columbia College whose family was in Gaza this summer will also be speaking. This is a rare opportunity to hear directly from students in Palestine and to build transnational relationships.
